Shortcut help

4 posts in this topic

Okay, i need help with another one i can't figure out what went wrong.

Made a simple start with the shortcut testing and used a simple 2 item xml.

The first item, a shortcut to explorer in my start menu went just fine! But the second one, for Nero, gave me a wierd shortcut :blink:

The shortcut on my desktop give's as target:

"C:\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe" \w"

I really don't know how to make the " /w a forward slash!!

Say forwards slahs, but i get a backwards slash...

And is there a way to make the shortcut icon appear as the "real" Nero Xpress icon? I get a default one now.

My code:

</config>
<items>
<item display="Moving, copying and deleting test files">

  <fileio-shortcut display="Adding menu start Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Windows explorer" configs="Testing">
  <link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Start Menu\Windows Explorer.lnk</link>
  <target>#SYSTEMROOT#\explorer.exe</target>
  <description>Displays the files and folders on your computer.</description>
  <workdir>#SYSTEMROOT#\</workdir>
  </fileio-shortcut>


  <fileio-shortcut display="Adding Desktop Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Nero Express" configs="Testing">
  <link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Desktop\Nero Express.lnk</link>
  <target>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe" /w</target>
  <description>The easiest and quickest way to burn all your audio, data, and video discs, and much more.</description>
  <workdir>#ProgramFiles#\Ahead\Nero\</workdir>
  </fileio-shortcut>

</item>
</items>
</XPlode4>

There's an <arguments> tag for <fileio-shortcut>, check the docs for the syntax, but I'm sure you'll be able to extrapolate what the correct syntax is :-)

As for the icon, that functionality isn't built in - post it on the bugtracker as a request and I'll see what I can do.

Thnx!

But i feel stupid that that i looked over that. :whistle:

Am at work now, but i'm going to read all about it tonight.

As for the icon thing, This only happens with the Nero Xpress icon.

Then it's not a problem for me.

Thnx again. :thumbup

That did the trick!!

<arguments> /w</arguments>

added that line and voila, there it is.

For the complete one:

<fileio-shortcut display="Adding Desktop Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Nero Express" configs="Testing">
<link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Desktop\Nero Express.lnk</link>
<target>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe</target>
<arguments> /w</arguments>
<description>The easiest and quickest way to burn all your audio, data, and video discs, and much more.</description>
<workdir>#ProgramFiles#\Ahead\Nero\</workdir>
</fileio-shortcut>

Now on to the complete list i had in v1.12.. :wacko:
